EDS secures a $25 Million contract with Australian Govt!

EDS has been charged with "streamlining and enhancing" people's use of government online services, including log-on access to the Australian Taxation Office, Medicare and Centrelink, as well as links to jobs, business opportunities, health, travel and other departmental resources.

Finance Minister Lindsay Tanner said people were frustrated by the need to visit multiple websites to get the information and services they need, "and have repeatedly requested simple access. Surveys have shown the present arrangements are too rigid, too hard to find, and often use complex language that's hard to understand".

Over four years, EDS will develop online accounts for individuals, allowing a central log-on and interaction with a range of agencies, as a one stop shop.

But Australians will not be compelled to use the online account as services offered through the site will be "strictly opt-in", Mr Tanner said in a statement.
